president of the nra, wayne lapierre. i want to get right to it. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. >> you proposed armed guards in school. we'll talk about that in some detail in a moment. you confronted the news media, you blamed hollywood and the gaming industry but never once did you concede that guns could actually be part of the problem. is that meaningful contribution, mr. lapierre, or a dodge? >> david, i said what i honestly thought and what hundreds of millions of people all over this country will believe will actually make a difference. i can't imagine a more horrible tragedy. we all have 5-year-olds in our family in some way. we all put ourselves in that situation and have tears in our eyes. the nra, we have 11,000 police training instructors, 80,000 police families, we're 4 million members and we set down and we said what can we do will actually make a difference today to make these kids safe? >> but not conceding guns play any role about the meaningful contribution? >> look, i know there's a media machine in this country that wants
luther king. and there was support in the leadership in the nra for gun control. and charlton heston even subdescribed to statement read by another hollywood tough guy, calling for some kind of regulation that prevents the repetition of these crimes, these assassinations. i think it's like with a lot of gun control measures, you support them in california, ronald reagan supported a gun control measure, and because black panthers were running around with guns in the state legislator in sacramento. >> host: carrying guns. >> guest: exactly. the law made it impossible to do that and imposed a waiting period on the time you needed between applying for a handgun and actually being able to buy it. and people say, oh, well, that law will certainly stop the black panthers. but that law doesn't apply just to black panthers. eventually you get a backlash, and there was a social and political backlash in general to a lot of the things that happened in the '60s, and i think gun control was one of them. so, -- >> host: the '68 act dealt with the list of prohibited purchasers. so it wasn't saying if yo

. pete, the nra not budging on its message from the press briefing that it gave on friday to the appearance on "meet the press" yesterday. their point is that the best issue for the gun control problem is not more regulation, but to have armed officers, trained armed people manning our schools. if past is prologue, where is the nra's next move going forward? >> well, you know, i think that's a good question because past may not be prologue here. the past was that the obama administration saw absolutely no chance of getting this flew congress. president obama when he campaigned for his first term, said he would like to look at reveezing the assault weapons ban. the white house sent some gentle signal early on they might try to do that, and it was instantly clear that they backed away from it. the mere prospect of president obama's being elected caused a huge run on ammunition, police departments were almost running out of it. now many democrats think the situation is different because of newtown and the other mass shootings this year, so i guess we're going to find out whet
